Projects for youth education and innovation


Within the framework of ‘Public policies and Lubnan al Qawi’, the head of the Free Patriotic Movement (FPM), minister Jibran Bassil launched yesterday four projects targeting youth. These are: Lebanon in a Picture, and the political tourism program, granting students preparing their masters or doctoral thesis the right to use the Parliament Library in their research, sharing political, economic and social dynamics and understanding the real performance and context of work inside the Lebanese public institutions. Bassil said the projects were part of a large national workshop that cannot be carried out by a single lawmaker, but is the responsibility of all, particularly, civil education and political education designed to build the national identity which is the core of the work. Meanwhile, Saida was the scene yesterday for the Model Arab League MAL 2018 workshops implemented jointly by LAU and the Hariri Foundation for Sustainable Human Development for the 8th consecutive year. Around 333 Middle and High School students from 27 private and public schools in Saida and environs participated this year. To note, this year’s subject was innovation, where participants were asked to address it under more than one theme, like for example, ‘youth and innovation’ and ‘women and innovation’. In the same vein, An Nahar daily drew attention to the cultural and educational exchange programs by the US Embassy Public Affairs Bureau, pointing to the YES program that encourages students to attend an American school and to the experience gained by the youth from studying abroad.
